Made of light foods, 'Juksang' is served at daybreak.  It is mainly composed of liquid foods such as porridge, mild broth and thin gruel, and accompanied by foods that are not pungent, like watery kimchi, salted-fish juice soup and dry salt dishes (e.g. dried fish and beef jerky).  The porridge was normally served at the center of table and served in small portions in a bowl placed to its right.  Salty and pungent foods do not match well with Juksang.
